ART is personal – what you might loathe another will love.
But we defy anyone to take a look at the forthcoming exhibition of photographic work at Milton Keynes Central Library and not find something that takes their fancy.
From this weekend, the Disabled Photographer’s Society Annual Exhibition is being housed at the book den.
The show will remain at the library throughout the month of September.
And if our selection of visuals lifted from the show are anything to go by, books might be left in the shade for a few weeks!
More than 100 images are being mounted and hung as you read this, in time for Saturday’s general opening, and among the many talented members of the DPS, you’ll be able to view pieces by three new city creatives.
Adrian Davies is one of them: “The styles vary from some extraordinarily good high contrast mono landscapes from MK to a particularly good image of a windswept cottage on the moors,” he told GO!
“Natural history is a specific genre that is encouraged for our exhibition entries, and another favourite genre is portraiture...”
There’s plenty for all – and admission is free.
View during usual library opening hours.
AS part of Milton Keynes’ Summer of Film 2012, Vagabond Cinema is showing a detailed documentary about the life of Norwegian artist, Hariton Pushwagner, tomorrow, at MK Gallery.
It is no coincidence that the film – which was pieced together over a three year period – is showing at the venue at the same time as his Pushwagner: Soft City exhibition is housed there.
You really must be quick if you want to view the art and haven’t so far – the curtain will fall on the show this Sunday.
Admission is free.
If you want to catch the film tomorrow, tickets are £5 and £3, call the gallery directly on MK 676900.
